On Halloween night, Washington area residents reported seeing a ball of fire streak across the sky between 6:30 p.m. and 9:30 p.m. Witnesses described a flash of light leaving their surroundings in either an orange or bluish hue before returning to darkness. One driver told a local meteorologist he could clearly see the inside of a passing car as if it were daytime. Experts agree the phenomenon was most likely a meteor, probably the size of a grapefruit, that had managed to survive entry.

In unrelated news, the "Golden Record" aboard Voyager 1 was recovered last night from a crater in the woods of Northern Virginia. The record offers greetings from Earth in 55 languages.

In other unrelated news, a woman living near the crater was reportedly abducted by a man resembling her dead husband. Authorities are investigating.

But did he look like Jeff Bridges?

Some of us prefer to think of him as Robert Hays from 'The Girl, the Gold Watch and Everything.'
